A presentation of the booklet Books for Home Reading was carried out under the aegis of the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and Tbilisi City Assembly. The writer, Zaal Samadashvili offers the schoolchildren and their parents the list of necessary home reading material. The literature is selected regarding three age groups – younger, middle age and elder children. All Tbilisi public schools will receive these lists. The lists will also help the families, who wish to make the reading process enjoyable for their children.
